Spirit Animals

The bond that connects spirit animals with humans has been recognized for centuries. When we find ourselves connected to a spirit animal, it is believed that we do not choose our own spirit animal; the spirit animal chooses us. By creating a bond with our spirit animals, they can offer healing or “medicine” in the form of guidance, protection, power, or wisdom. We are not limited to one spirit animal in a lifetime; we can have multiple spirit animals come in and out of our lives and each provide us with unique knowledge.

One of the best ways to connect with your animal companion is through regular meditation. Sit in a comfortable position, close your eyes, and take some deep breaths. Visualize your animal friend in as much detail as possible. It’s important to focus on your breathing, since animals can sense when we are stressed or anxious, and this can interfere with the connection between you.

In your mind’s eye, offer a gesture of welcome and invitation. The image you’ve created will help to open up communication channels between you and provide a deeper understanding of each other.

From a young age, I have been intrigued by the wisdom and mystery of Native American culture and ceremonies. The idea of creating four paintings of spirit animals is a way for me to connect with this part of my heritage in past lives.

The wolf is a spiritual guide and an ancient teacher. In Native American tradition, animal medicine is often used during healing ceremonies. The wolf provides guidance when you need empowerment and strength. The wolf can take you on a guided journey through the natural rhythms of your life where you can experience rebirth, renewal and joy. It can be a mentor that helps to restore balance within yourself and your environment; it can teach you how to trust in your own instincts as well as within yourself as a whole person.

Eagle, as your spirit animal, is a symbol of change. The winds of change are heading your way and eagle is here to help prepare you. inner strength and fortitude will see you through whatever changes come your way.

Eagles are known for their majestic flying abilities and their powerful hunting skills. Their spirit animal is one of strength, courage, and determination. Those with the eagle totem animal are said to be able to achieve great heights of success. They are natural leaders with a propensity for taking risks. They are also down-to-earth, keeping one foot on the ground even as they soar to new heights.
